I copied some of them from there. The John Nivison who sold property is also a puzzle to me. However, I believe that the other set went to Isle of Wright, around Norfolk va. During the civil war there were two separate Nivison's in NJ related as far as I can tell but one set left Monmouth after the civil war sometime. There was John Nivison Sr and his son John Nivison Jr. Then there was William Nivison and his son also called John Nivison Jr. All of these were in the rev war. John Nivison Jr who stayed in NJ had a son called William Tazwell Nivison. The John Nivison who went to Norfolk Va also had a son named William Tazwell Nivison..The Birth dates for all of these men are very close.
